March 2014 – Scuf Gaming (“SCUF”) announces settlement of a dispute involving Scuf Gaming’s patent rights. Scuf Gaming is the exclusive U.S. licensee of Ironburg Inventions (“Ironburg”) patents covering innovations in game controller technology.

The issue – U.S. Patents No. 8,641,525 and D667,892 cover Scuf Gaming’s back paddle controls, which deliver the functionality of the front buttons to the back of the controller, creating heightened dexterity in a safe, ergonomic way.

As part of the settlement, Imagine customs has agreed to cease manufacture and sales of controllers that include the patented paddles.

“Our intellectual property is a critical component of our value and competitive edge” said Duncan Ironmonger, CEO & Co-Founder of SCUF & Ironburg. “Our ability to protect inventions we have heavily invested in, enables us to continue to innovate and raise the bar for the industry, which in turn enhances the gamer’s experience.”

Scuf Gaming is the manufacturer, wholesaler, retailer, and restorer of custom video game equipment and accessories.

The HCS London 2017 event was a brilliant example of incredible Halo action taking the action to Europe for some hard-hitting competition. 32 of the best teams across the pond met up at the Gfinity Arena in Fulham to grab their piece of a $25,000 prize pool and the chance to qualify for DreamHack Denver in October.

Ultimately, the final event came down to two SCUF favorites: Team Infused and Supremacy. While both veteran esports teams were equally matched to one another, in the end, Infused took home a 4-1 victory over their opponents. Will there be a rematch between these rivals in Denver? Only time will tell.

SCUF celebrated the event with the HCS London Giveaway: a chance for one lucky fan to take home a TeamSCUF Infinity1. The winner will be announced today, so keep an eye on SCUF's Twitter and Facebook for your chance to equip a custom Xbox controller of your own!
Blurring the lines between the MMO, RPG and FPS, Bungie’s Destiny sends you through an elaborate space opera to save humanity from ruthless alien forces that want to see us extinct.

In this game guide, we’ll be showing you how to get the most out of your SCUF controller when playing in the massive online world of Destiny.

Paddle configuration:


There is always a reason to keep an eye over your shoulder in the world of Destiny. Your foes aren’t above getting in a shot when you’re trying to loot ammo crates or even when you’re reviving a teammate.

For maximum efficiency, set your controller configuration to Puppeteer and map your left paddle to Square (for the PS4) or X (for the Xbox One). This setup will allow you to revive teammates or loot crates while keeping your thumb on the thumbstick: letting you keep aiming to avoid an enemy who’s trying to get the drop on you!

In addition, map your right paddle to X (for the PS4) or A (for the Xbox One). Jumping and aiming in Destiny can be quite difficult, but players who make use of abilities like Icarus will be very happy to have the ability to do both at once.

Trigger Stops:


Single fire weapons only shoot as quickly as you can pull the trigger, and that’s where SCUF’s trigger stops come in. By activating these stops, a Guardian can put down more fire in a shorter amount of time, making that Scout Rifle even more deadly. And if you’re looking to hop on your Sparrow and cruise to the next zone, turning off your trigger stops takes seconds, and doesn’t require a game restart.

Thumbsticks:


Thumbstick preference is a personal choice when compared to SCUF’s other customizable features. However, TeamSCUF prefers using regular concave thumbsticks for the ability to really dig in our thumbs when running and gunning. This is particularly effective in extended game sessions, where you’re more likely to lose that grip over time.

Destiny is one of the biggest games in the galaxy, and with Destiny 2 on the horizon, we hope to see every Guardian in TeamSCUF gearing up to take down that Wizard from the Moon.

Let us know what configuration has worked best for you! Follow SCUF on Twitter and Facebook and tell us what you think.

Apex Season 3

Get ready to become champion in a whole new arena in of Apex Legends’ Season 3, available since October 1st on PS4™, Xbox One™, and PC. With a new champion, a new map, a new rifle, and a new battle pass, you’ll want every advantage to take your squad to the top. Here’s what you need to know to become the best gamer you can be in Apex Legends.

Be A Legend With SCUF

Be prepared for anything that comes your way with the rear paddles on every SCUF controller. Jump and Slide to dodge enemies and perform trick shots all while keeping your thumbs on the thumbsticks, ready to aim.

In addition to paddles, the SCUF Vantage has 2 additional side buttons. Keep your health/shield and grenade wheels handy at your side by placing them on the Sax buttons for quicker control during intense fights.

For even more control of your aim, every SCUF controller also features an interchangeable thumbstick system. With thumbsticks available in different shapes and heights, you can truly customize your gear to match your play style. Shorter thumbsticks are great for movement while longer thumbsticks increase your angle to play with, meaning more accuracy. Similarly, the concave shape will give your thumb more grip, which is ideal for quick movement and high sensitivity players and the domed shape enables more finesse, ideal for lower sensitivities.

If you’re a Wattson who loves to play defensively, we recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left for speed and the subtle control and accuracy of a tall domed thumbstick on the right.

If you’re more aggressive like Wraith and Bangalore players, we again recommend a short concave thumbstick on the left, but this time a short domed thumbstick on the right to enable more reactivity.

A Closer Look At The New Offerings For Season 3 Of Apex Legends

Crypto, the new champion, is a hacker who uses his drone to survey the surrounding area. He will be great to counter aggressive teams and break the enemy's tactical strategy by automatically highlighting enemy players for your fellow teammates. However, be mindful: while the drone is active, Crypto stays in place, so be sure to pick a safe spot and it will alert enemies that they have been spotted. Crypto’s Ultimate Ability is an EMP blast using the Drone to slow down enemies, disable traps, and deal up to 50 damage.

World’s Edge, the new map, features a totally different landscape than that of King’s Canyon with all new fire and ice environments, an urban city, and a moving train. It’s vast with open sight lines, perfect for Crypto and more strategic plays.

The Charge Rifle is from Titanfall and Titanfall 2, an anti-Titan laser canon; it’s slow to charge but can shoot over a long distance and deals a lot of damage. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out compared to other popular weapons in the game.
